Photos from a Wild Sea Otter Mother and Pup’s Visit to Monterey Bay Aquarium

Posted on February 9, 2014

A wild sea otter mother and her very young pup floated with the tide into Monterey Bay Aquarium’s outdoor tide pool, where they stayed for about a day before heading back out into the wild. Aquarium staff was able to take some beautiful photos and a fantastic video of the pair (we’ve got links to more photos at the bottom of this post):

    I think this is a testament to the Aquarium, that a wild otter mother felt safe enough to bring her baby there. Really beautiful and lovely, the whole thing!
